That will eventually be Dayo. But until he is healthy yeah we need someone.

When he comes back and is working himself into shape and a roster spot, sure.  Going forward though, I doubt Buckner's backup is what they were envisioning in rd. 2

Dayo will be the LDE (Jabaal Sheard/Denico Autry) in base defense and Paye will be the RDE (Houston) in base. 

 

If Woods is signed he is in competition behind Grover Stewart as a NT with Stallworth, Brown and Williams. 

 

Windsor and Cline are in competition to be the UT depth behind Buckner with Dayo and Lewis capable of sliding inside on passing downs.

From everything that was said after he was drafted he will play role similiar to Autry. He can play anywhere on the line. With his length he will be able to play that 3 tech also if Buckner is injured.

Not his backup as sitting on the bench and not playing. But like Autry he will play all over but he can also play 3 tech if Buckner gets injured.

 Sorry but you left out Isaac Rochel. I believe he is a 1-2nd down DE with 3rd down UT expectations that Ballard brought in.

Right now the person to backup Stewart I think is Stallworth.   I read good things about him last year and we brought him back.   I suppose it doesn’t hurt to have more competition.....

Woods was solid but unspectacular here in 2017-2018. He did start 1.5 seasons for us before taking a back seat to Stewart. 
 

when he moved on, it was widely panned as it being since the colts were going more 4-3 and away from 3-4 and also that we wanted to see what we had in Grover, which clearly worked out well

 

for Ballard to show interest in a 34 year old reserve is fairly rare. 
 

but right now we have probably one of the youngest DLs in the league with Buckner and Grover being the eldest at 27. 
 

woods could provide a veteran presence and some backup snaps at NT.
 

It could also be Ballard doing a solid in giving a visit to an old respected vet that played some solid ball for us a few years back.

I think you are confusing Al Woods with Antauwn Woods.

Nobody got excited when Ballard brought in Autry, or either of our CBs really.  Some were calling Rhodes a liability.  He’s got production and value from a number of “cast-offs”now.  I wont discount anyone.  Sometimes those “round” cast-offs were being forced into “square” positions, if you know what i mean.

Agreed. I noticed my mistake earlier. I knew it was Al Woods. I did not pay close enough attention to the fact it was Antwaun coming in for a visit and mistook the visit for actually being Al lol

 

Shoulda known better w the age and fit question marks lol

    • Positions that are clear (real and perceived) QB1, X-WR, RB1, APB, RT, RG, C, LG, 3T, NT, CB1 (Rhodes), NB (Moore), WILL, TE1 and TE2.   The rest, have some element of fog (real or perceived) IMO.   Offense QB2 - If Eason is clearly #2, not sure whey we waste a draft pick on another QB. I didn't get it then, and not now lol. Z - Hilton his aging. Pretty clear the plan when drafting Campbell was that he would gradually work outside. Slot - PC is the obvious guy if healthy, but if he is healthy, and they start moving him outside, we still have questions.  LT - Fisher is clear if he returns to form. If not, a lot of fog. TE3 - Granson is a wildcard but assuming they want to use him as a move-slot-TE like they tried to use Burton. Not really a true TE   Defense L and RDE - time share here. There are several rotations I can see here, and likely won't be set early. MIKE - Oke is the clear leader, but there will be a lot of eyes on his run D. A time share here would not shock me. SAM - we don't use it a lot, so who knows. I could even see Oke playing SAM and Franklin handling MIKE on those SAM downs. LB Depth - who knows. Will we ever see Speed emerge? CB2 and CB Detph - RYS vs Carrie vs Tell vs Rogers. Nothing would surprise me. FS - Blackmon needs to take a big step forward in deep coverage. If not, I could see a rotation here. SS - Willis is very solid, but I could see him getting pushed by Shawn Davis.  
    • I think the QB position is a little unique in terms of depth expectation and planning.  And it depends on your expectations of the team.  See below in my response to CR91 for more.   Not sure I understand. How was letting Walker go an "answer".      Couple points here...  Hoyer's loss vs Miami was 99% on Reich. After Hoyer played pretty well vs Pitt (coming in cold) in which he had 3 TDs / 1 INT and completed 65% of passes, Reich chose to 1) not practice Hoyer with the 1s leading up to the Miami game, and 2) chose to throw it all over the school yard (around 40 attempts) vs a team that was horrible vs the run. Just super bad game plan and prep. I agree that a pricey vet QB, or spending much on a backup QB in general is pretty much a waste. That is, unless you are a true SB contender going into the year (and can afford it). I've always felt if your starting QB goes down for the year, might as well accept things and embrace a higher draft pick come next draft. It's extremely rare to go deep with a backup. Even Foles wasn't seen as a high end backup. He was just off a cheap one year deal, and was contemplating retirement. He came back to Philly for a moderate deal, which most thought was even too much. That was purely luck. Just my opinion, but I like riding out Eason and trying to develop him along the way. And trade him (if he's not in contention for starting job) later if you can get picks, or keep him if he's decent and cheap. I, like you, like what the Pats do most years.
    • I don’t think a decision can be made until the preseason when we all see if Eason can play.  There are guys out there like Barkley, who can get you through a game or two in a pinch.  From what I read the Bears will probably keep Foles simply because his contract makes it easy for them   But my point was that it’s interesting that most of of aren’t really concerned about the backup QB even though it’s the position that we have least experience.
